This first aspect which is right is the first storyline and that first cutscene which gets everyone into Nazjatar. I hadn’t seen it before launch, so all I knew was the Alliance is chasing the Horde ships who are headed out to the middle of the ocean because of reasons. Then Azshara does something which opens a hole in the middle of the ocean, and both the Horde and Alliance get shipwrecked.

As a casual guild who only raid twice a week there isn’t time to spend on normal every week as well. I still wish there were skips in the raids to help facilitate doing some of normal while we work on heroic, but there’s no point in hoping for the pot at the end of the rainbow. … [Read more...] about What World of Warcraft Classic Has That Retail Doesn’t
